Not exactly. The Khabbalistic cross does attune the body to the Ouranic/Chthinic verticle flow as does the Pillar exercise. The Cross also attempts to balance the male/female or left/right flow with the horizontal arm of the cross. The Pillar and Spheres focuses more on establishing the elements on the body in a particular order that causes an alchemical reaction between them. They are different rites that have some similarity, but not exactly the same aims.
